China vs England : A Preview, Predictions,

Match Review

England’s 2023 Women’s World Cup form has been unspectacular to say the least, but as we all know, tournament success is determined by how you perform at the end of the tournament rather than how you get off to a great start.

They now lead Group D with four points after two 1-0 victories over Haiti and a draw with Denmark in their first two group games. Sarina Wiegman’s team is in a strong position to advance as group champions. To achieve that, they just need to defeat China in Adelaide by a single point.

China vs England Head-to-Head

There have been five matches between England and China, with the Steel Roses triumphing in three and the Lionesses triumphing in one. There has also been one draw.

The last time the two sides met was in a friendly in October 2015, with China winning 2-1.

China have played in all but one edition of every FIFA Women’s World Cup since 1991, and have never been eliminated from the group stage.

England have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four games, after failing to score a single goal in their previous six.

The Lionesses were fourth in the most recent FIFA rankings, but now find themselves 10 places above their opponents in midweek.

China vs England Prediction

China’s latest win saw them snap a three-game losing streak, and they will look to continue that momentum this weekend. England, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last three matches and have only lost once since September 2021, and they are favorites for Tuesday’s clash at Coppers Stadium.

We predict China 0-2 England
